If you have discovered that you have ringworm early on, it is better to apply remedies before it spreads to other parts of the body. Here is the list of some natural home remedies and procedures on how to treat buni and stop the growth of fungi.
What to do:
Before applying any home remedy, rinse the skin affected by ringworm first with warm water and soap. After washing the infected part, dry the skin properly with a clean towel or cloth. Fungus tends to develop faster on the wet part of the skin.
Garlic is anecdotally known as an effective remedy for infection and fungi, though no actual studies prove the effectiveness of it in treating an infection. To use as a treatment, simply crush the garlic and mix it with coconut oil. Applying this paste twice a day may relieve the symptoms of buni.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Studies say that apple cider vinegar (ACV) contains antifungal properties. Using a piece of cloth or cotton, apply ACV on the infected part three times a day to resolve the symptoms of the buni or ringworm.
Based on another study, aloe vera also contains antibacterial and antifungal properties. It will also help to soothe the itchy skin that has fungi.
The acids found in coconut oil are believed to be able to kill fungal cells. Based on some studies, coconut oil is an effective remedy for different skin infections, including ringworm. Apply it to the affected skin three times a day. It can also be used as a lotion to prevent the fungi from spreading.
